AKA XOX Teriyaki Yummy Drummy's. My dad's favorite chicken tenderizing method. Of course I altered it slightly for Good Dad Bad Man purposes. Partially cooked using a roasting stew method these Drummy's serve as the perfect appetizers when the boys are over for the big game.
Another variation of my Brew Haha Stewing Method. 14 large drum sticks for less then five dollars you can't beat that. I love chicken wings don't get me wrong but if you really want to bring it then "Speak softly and serve a big drum stick".

12 each fluid ounces Swanson Chicken Broth
8 each fluid ounces Starport XOX Teriyaki Sauce

Servings: Recipe makes 12 to 14 each drum sticks
The onions add with the flavoring and keep the bottom layer of drumsticks from making direct contact with the roasting pan.
Your roasting pan should be deep enough to allow for 24 fluid ounces of broth mix and 5 pounds of drum sticks. There should be at least 2 inches of space between the top of the broth level and the top of the roasting pan.
I love using fresh herbs for this style stew roasting. If you only have dried herbs its no problem substituting.
I'm lucky to have this cast iron roasting pan. Decades old it's still a workhorse in the kitchen. Place pan in the middle of the oven to heat evenly.
When cooling the drum sticks with the lid off go ahead and pick the now dried fresh herbs off the chicken and dispose of. At this point the chicken is cooked enough to eat that's why not all the Drummy's make it to the next step.
Call me prejudice but Starport XOX Teriyaki Sauce is my go to glaze for these bad boys. But any teriyaki you like will work.
When you lay out your drum sticks avoid allowing them to touch on the baking pan. You should have a little sauce in reserve from the mixing bowl save this to finish off the chicken with sauce when they have cooked.
Makes a great presentation and is sure to please your hardcore sports friends. Ladies you want to make a good impression with your new man? Whip the XOX Teriyaki Yummy Drummy's out and cruise into his heart.
